Very good, especially thoughts on book abandonment. This is a choice I allow myself, and need to respect that students need the choice as well.

I totally agree that reading logs turns students off to reading. I previously leveled all of my books and am now considering letting that system go. Furthermore, I loved the idea of celebrating when students abandon books and then interviewing them as to why.

celebrate when a student is disengaged and wants to change their book- this means that they know more about themselves as a reader, let them find their book.
-love this ^^^^ thanks for all the ways to offer choice i find it to be valuable also.
